This article is part of our DFS KBO series.
Friday's KBO action saw only the Dinos and Wiz out of the league's seven contending teams manage a win. The Dinos got a strong outing from Myung Gi Song, who allowed just one run on three hits while striking out five in six innings, as they defeated the Twins by a 7-1 score. Odrisamer Despaigne threw a quality start for the Wiz while Jae Gyun Hwang's four hits and a homer helped make up for hitless days from Mel Rojas Jr. and Baek Ho Kang as the Wiz beat the Tigers 7-3. The other three contests all saw upsets from bottom-three sides. The Eagles managed their fifth straight victory as Brandon Barned homered in his third straight game to help his team beat the Giants 6-5, with Ju Suk Ha's walkoff single in the 10th inning deciding the outcome. Ricardo Pinto continued his recent hot streak, dominating the Heroes with eight strikeouts and just four hits allowed over seven scoreless innings, though 13 runs would be scored from the bottom of the eighth onwards in a game the Wyverns would eventually win 8-6 in 11 innings. Elsewhere, a seven-inning, three-run performance from Chae Heung Choi was enough to help the Lions slip by the Bears, 4-3.
Saturday's slate, which begins slightly earlier at 4 a.m. ET, contains quite a few pitchers who look like prime stack targets, with the only reliable arms coming in quite expensive.
